Nice collection Matthew...,what serial numbers are your RPs...I'm looking for number one hundred
Like 735 and 738 or something, I think. I checked up on the Colorado piece and it looks minty fresh other then a smudge on the bottom of the obverse cameo. The coin case is all chipped up to hell but still looks quite a bit better than the case my decent looking Montana piece is in which one was $23 bucks at the flea market.
A 1oz 06/07 and a 1/2 oz piece with arrest hallmarks went at auction for the price of their generic counterparts yesterday, about 50 bucks with shipping for the both. Hallmarks were unadvertised and main photo was of the obverse but I assumed people would have caught on. I am obviously unsure of the max bid but I am kicking myself over missing that one.
Something like a 10th anniversary round with the USA hallmark or the scarce trial hallmark listed with the generic obverse is a money maker that happens every now and again.
Someone got that 2016 Trump FDI that was listed under that name's bullion for 40 bucks. I guess there is an additional half-type of those with some sort of die wear because they were in their original mint condition despite not having the perfect satin finish. It was $10 bucks more than what I got two more proper looking ones for, $30 being 5 less than the initial Trump Tower offer.
There's such a huge premium market for things like weird varieties of engelhardt bar errors and limited castings done by a prolific artist. Sometimes pawn shops basically end up pawning their own stuff due to an inability to do their job for what they end up selling this stuff for. Having a big sign outside your firm saying "WE BUY GOLD AND SILVER" and then selling it for something like 1/5th of its premium comes off as bad faith to me but I am happy to make a buck.
are they usa only? usually they wont post to us or its a crazy more than the coin is worth for postage, crazy seppos.
^^^ yes postage is a killer. So I just sit back and relax for the right deals on the <500's
This listing would be a good one to go for if someone collects the early stuff. On first look the listing appears to be for a 10,000 mintage item but closer inspection reveals that the FDI CoA is for an item that represents 3% of this total. I asked what the FDI hallmark looked like and got a photo, it is 12182 in a box. It stands for 1/21/82, I guess.
Us Americans are eating it up over here.
